Docktails by the frog pond

I love my new dock. As I sat, I heard a doe walking behind me. She came out across the pond. The cats love the dock, as well. They watch the bugs, check out frogs hopping (the frogs get away), and then they come back and sit with me. The water is now about knee-deep somewhat deeper in the middle. The lovely little pond plants, European Frog-Bit Hydrocharis morsus-ranae, are invasive, apparently. They protect the pond, however, and give sanctuary to the frogs.

Annabelle and I built a turtle basking platform! Buster came and sat on my lap. See the fallen maple leaves? August is coming to a close, it's cooler at night. Still, perfect days with few bugs and warm temperatures.

The cats look quite used to the dock. I am noticing cooler temps in the evenings. This morning I mused about taking a pullover sweater.

You live a very pleasant life by your pond.

You really built yourself a little magic spot there! Love it.

I like what Yam said. Sounds like a glorious thing.
I also love the photos of the cats "using" the dock as a big, new plaything. I'm sure they think it was built for them.
And a cat in your lap? A blessing.
Luv, K
